california, the tax capital of the world, taxes could now go even higher for those earning more than $250,000 a year, or maybe a lot higher because a republican congressman seas we should freeze tax rates for the majority of the americans in time for christmas and deal with the top 2 percent who likely see their rates raised later. that triggers this reaction from house of representatives speaker boehner. >> i told tom i disagreed. you are not going to grow the economy if you raise tax rates on the top two rates. it will hurt small business. it will hurt our economy. that is why this is not the right approach. >> now the guy at the center of the tax storm, oklahoma republican congressman, congressman, he singled you out for calling you out. how do you feel about that? >> i like the speaker. we have a great relationship and we are able to talking directly and honestly with each other and i have no problem with it. i would expect him to express his opinion as he would expect me to express mine. >>neil: he is saying you are precaving. >>guest: that is nonsense. the reality is, tax rates go u
, michelle. >> you bet. take care ?ie. now to california where -- >>> now to california where a thousand union workers are expected to protest at l.a.x., l.a.'s airport, tomorrow, on one of the busiest travel days of the year. several protests are underway at oakland airport, again, california. my next guest is not ruling out major disruptions. he is the director of the siu's southern california airport division, and he joins me by phone. i want to quote you from an interview on knx radio. you said it is entirely possible that we will be significant travel delays. they are deliberately hurting average americans. you are deliberately inflicting maximum pain at a peak travel time. are you comfortable with doing that? >> this is really about the workers at l.a.x. who have had their families' health care ripped a -- away. it has been brewing for more than a year and we attempted many, many avenues to negotiate. and most recently the mayor's office broke off negotiations. we will attempt to -- >> andrew, would you consider halting this protest next week when you won't hurt so many people. so
out here in california, you look what happened on the national level, nothing changes. congress did not change one bit. the administration doesn't change one bit. nothing happened the last fur years. and it will not happen the next four years. a big day for redistribution. a big day for big government. a big day if the unions. i don't think anything will change going forward. >>neil: you are right about that so that means trillion dollar gifts build up year after year and we do not yesly address spending and both sides are doing everyone coming closer but you you are not buying it. >>guest: even if they do address this cliff, it is a small piece, i mean, it is acn. medicine on a major disease. it is not going to fix the direction we are on. we are headed to 50 percent of the g.d.p. in the public sector. that becomes very much a directed economy opposed to the invisible hand and a more efficient less corrupt and more libertarian or personal freedoms kind of economy. we are just not there anymore. >>neil: do you think the markets need a deal? more days like this, that will push congre
. here we go. >>reporter: that is true if the live in the state of california or someone like you would works, why know if you live in new york but you work in new york and the tax rates in new york city could go do 50 percent and california as high as 52 percent, we have not seen rates that high since the 1970's. >>neil: leave aside what will happen on health care people forget this is a lot more than just returning to the clinton top rate of 39.6 percent. it is about going well beyond that and the fact that democrats are feeling their oats after the election and saying, look, this isn't about just marginal rates but the marginal rates and this, not either, or, but "and" this. >>guest: that is what chuck schumer said before the election, saying close loopholes and raise the rates at the same time, which is exactly the opposite of tax reform. >>neil: how does a guy like that who represents the financial capital of the world sort that out and its economic impact. >>guest: this is an important point i am glad you brought it up. what is the financial capital of the world? new york wants to
already have a 18 cents tax and most states have a gas tax in california 64.8 cents per gallon and you don't see the economy suffering, and the consumers and seen 1.50 jump in gas prices. what this would probably do, we don't have it on paper is pay for things like road repairs and necessary things like that. why is it good? it encourages innovation, car pooling, people to kind of watch, and conserve frankly we have to think about the national security issues and conservation. >> nan: kevin, i know you don't agree with this one. >> no, i can't believe that a gas tax could be the answer to the fiscal cliff or anything else, more taxes not the answer here, and the stronger economy, but this is really a tax on the middle class, and people who drive our trucks and our car and deliver our food and everything else, this is going to tax them directly and already, as pointed out in california, over 65 cents a gallon at the tank for federal and state tax and new jersey the highest in the country and some of the states would be crushed, people cannot afford more, taxes from every direction, 55% esta
